Former Florida and South Carolina head coach Will Muschamp has joined Georgia as a defensive analyst, Bulldogs head coach Kirby Smart said Wednesday.
It’s an off-field role for Muschamp, said Smart, who played with Muschamp briefly at Georgia in the 1990s. The two have remained longtime friends.
“As of last week we were able to get things completed with Will,” Smart said Wednesday. “He’s already made a lot of strides in terms of helping me, helping our staff. He’ll be able to help coach the coaches.”
Muschamp, 49, was fired by South Carolina in November. He was in his fifth season with the Gamecocks and finished with a 28-30 record. He coached at Florida from 2011-14 and finished 28-21 before being dismissed. He owns a 56-51 overall record.
Muschamp has also been a defensive coordinator at Auburn, Texas and LSU.
Muschamp’s son, Jackson, is a walk-on quarterback at Georgia.
